Words of wisdom to end the week, found in my reading last night. Such practical advice.
"Rise early. Eat simple food. Take plenty of exercise. Never fear a little fatigue.
Avoid the necessity of a physician, if you can, by careful attention to your diet. Eat what best agrees with your system, and resolutely abstain from what hurts you, however well you may like it. A few day's abstinence, and cold water for beverage, has driven off many an approaching disease."
From The American Frugal Housewife, by Mrs. Child ~ 1833
